Toronto is a Fun City!

Yes, it’s true. I was there last week because my good friend, Martha Eleen (who I met when she was Artist in Res in Dawson City), opened her Yukon show: Midnight on the Water. Her awesome paintings took me right back to the spectacular north and my beloved Yukon River. I bought a painting and every day I wait with anticipation for it to arrive at my door.

We went to the old Gladstone on Queen West (Toronto residents will know this beautiful old hotel well), as well as walked the west end taking in the amazing graffiti, antique stores and art galleries. A good time could have become even better, had I not come down with an evil flu which has only just vacated my body…

Sorry to all the people on the plane I rode home on — I hope you didn’t get as sick as I did… That big guy behind me is the Flu Bug.

  1. Julie,

    I loved the graffiti shots, yes, even the flu bug behind you. That is some terrific art!! Is Martha Eleen’s art done in water color (did you mention that and I missed it)? It looks like it is. Her paintings seem to have a certain tranquility to them. Very nice!!

    Sorry you came down with the flu, but glad it’s finally leaving your body behind. 🙂

  2. Martha paints in oil — at least for this show. I added a few more shots of her art as well as some street art I liked for your enjoyment. I bought the painting of the sun setting over the Yukon River — or trying to!

    Hello, I just came across this picture on the internet when searching for graffiti in Toronto. It is amazing and was exactly what Im looking for as Im looking to do a photo shoot with some art like this in the background. If you remember what intersection this was taken at roughly it would help out so much!
